Please join us for a special pre-release screening of


Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at 7:00pm

Followed by a Q&A with:

Filmmakers Stephen Apkon and Marcina Hale, and members of Combatants for Peace, Assaf Yacobovitz, Suliman al-Khatib, and Jamel Qassas.

Assaf Yacobovitz served as an officer in the Israeli Air Force, and took part in Operation Cast Lead (the first Gaza War). He is a psychologist and lives in Tel Aviv. Suliman al-Khatib was raised in the village of Hizme in northeast Jerusalem. At the age of 14, a year after he joined “Fatah”, he was arrested for attacking two Israelis and served 10 years in Israeli prison. Suliman is a Co-Founder and current Director of Combatants for Peace. Jamel Qassas was born in the Deheisha refugee camp outside of Bethlehem. He went to jail 13 times for his participation in the 1st Intifada, during which his brother was killed. He works in construction and continues to live in Deheisha with his wife and children. Disturbing the Peace is about people born into conflict, sworn to be enemies, who challenged their fate. The film follows former enemy combatants - Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison - who have joined together to challenge the status quo and say “enough." The film reveals their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to armed battle to nonviolent peace activists.

Special thanks to Marjorie Layden for sponsoring the screening.
